Timmy's ear tube(s) came out a little over a week ago. What was to follow? Of course, an ear infection in his left ear, his good ear.
After 3 days of being on an antibotic, Timmy spikes a temperature of 102.5 on Thursday Morning. I gave him a dose of Motrin, which brought the temperature down nicely. All day Timmy didn't spike a temperature. He was his smiling, happy, laughing self. In the early evening Timmy spiked another Temperature of 102.7. He was given a dose of Motrin, which brought the temperature down. Timmy showed no other sign of illness. His ear(s) aren't draining and they don't look like they may be inflamed.
Could this spike in temperature be a result of Daddy giving Timmy his 2nd 4mg. dose of Zanaflex, to try to help Timmy get back to sleep, following a middle of the night diaper change? I seem to recall something like this occuring awhile back, but can't remember if it was during an ear infection or if an illness followed the temperature spike.
I have my fingers crossed that the spike in temperature isn't a result of the antibotic masking some underlying horrible illness, which will flare up once the antibotic regiment is complete.
Unfortunately, being Timmy had a temperature he had to miss the field trip on Thursday to the Police Station. There were other awesome pictures of Timmy that were taken earlier in the week.
So enjoy the Podcast.
